♪ >> announcer: this is al jazeera. ♪ welcome to the news hour, i'm sammy in doha and the world's two most powerful leaders prepare to meet and we will ask can they bridge their differences. britain announces it is sending 370 troops to somalia and south sudan. eight dead, more than 50 wounded on an attack in kunduz in northern afghanistan. spain heads for constitutional
6:01 am
crisis as nationalists win a landmark election and golf's $11 million man wraps up the biggest of the year and jordan spieth with two majors to become the new world number one. ♪ all right, president vladimir putin is to meet with u.s. president barack obama on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly. crisis in syria is likely to dominate their discussion with russia asserting its support for the bashar el assad's regime and the mediterranean navel base is where it is stationed some of its black sea fleet, russia is syria's biggest arms supplier and continues to provide the
6:02 am
regime with means to crack down on rebels and they have a financial interest in syria and with value of $19 billion in 2009, russia has consistently opposed any condemnation of bashar al-assad and and shuns against his government since the conflict began in 2011. let's bring you some pictures of what it looked like on previous occasions the two leaders have met and this is a meeting in northern ireland in 2013 and commentators speaking at the time about the frosty body language and facial expressions that preveiled between them. let's take this now to our guest who joins us from moscow, sergai, a k columnist with the newspaper and is there a belief this meet willing be a little
6:03 am
warmer? >> saying high open hopes depend on the meeting because relations between the two are quite frosty at least and this meeting would come as the event of the year and good reason to believe in that and syria would have a hot potato leaders and looking at the broader term we will see that it was president obama who actually master minded the isolation of russia and a lot depends on this meeting with sending signal to a european asian partners of the united states who were scared to build special relationship with putin and sanctions. >> a lot riding on this but there are some differences as well and i'll ask you to stay with me as we review some differences as it comes to policy, the european union for example has been taking part in a diplomatic push on syria at
6:04 am
the u.n., the 28 nation block said assad has no part in the future and sounds clear but it's not clear and the france president says a solution must center around the syrian president stepping down and they dropped the opposition of assad staying in power temporarily as part of a transitional government and the russian position has been one of support for the assad regime and do you think those sorts of differences can be bridged? >> well, those events indicate what we have seen in resent weeks and days is flurry of unprecedented and diplomatic activity over syria so the main problem now is how to mesh those largely confusing and conflicting efforts which are taken by the west and while the
6:05 am
russia's active role in syria up grading the technical cooperation with the assad regime, in practical terms what we see now are anti-coalition which can include russia, probably iran, iraq and other countries so the main question is whether this coalitions would be able to cooperate and if so what to what extent and if they do not cooperate it will depend on the presidents meeting and how they should act not to harm each other. >> talk about u.s. policy but what about the russia policy to syria, does russia think the opposition will agree to any sort of resolution that obama and putin work on which doesn't include the removal of assad and includes assad staying on in power, does russia really
6:06 am
believe that is possible? >> russia's position is quite often interpreted as just an attempt to keep president assad at any cost but the stakes are much higher and the reason why russia is against the removal of assad is that russia is asking the question what comes next and whether abrupt removed with the state and sequences which can come as a nightmare for the neighboring region, that is what russia is proposing to look into the syrian situation in sort of a package deal which would involve a number of issues like fighting i.s.i.s. and working out ways for political transition where attempts to resolve all the issues would come hand in hand. >> sergai from moscow, good to
6:07 am
have you with us, thanks for that and on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly the uk announced it is sending soldiers for peace keeping missions in somalia and south sudan and we are joined in london and why now barnabie? >> well, prime minister david cameron says there are reasons to be involved in the situation in south sudan and somalia and arguing, saying it's in their own interest and has a link with migration crisis and it's true there are a number of somalie migrants coming but not south sudan it has to be said and said britain is a relatively well off generous country and gives a large proportion of its budget to aid and he believes that small numbers of british soldiers could make a difference in stabilizing the difficult
6:08 am
situations both in somalia and south sudan. >> what exactly will british troops be doing in these conflict zones? >> well, one thing that they won't be doing according to the prime minister is active combat itself, he is talking about how they will be involved in training, both in somalia with the african union force there and in south sudan with the u.n. force, combat training and they will be involved in logistics, engineering, medical skills the kind of things they are good at. nonetheless this is quite a change you would have to say from british policy towards big peace keeping missions in africa and indeed western policy on the whole towards large peace keeping misses in africa and the trend in resent decades would be countries like britain or france do stump up the money for these
6:09 am
missions but they tend not to commit troops on the ground. where they have been involved militarily in the british case, in sierra leone on tony blair some 15 years ago or in the french case or eastern congo they have remained very aton mouse taking orders directly from london or paris and here as far as we can tell they will be coming under the umbrella of international peace keeping missions so i think that is significant. >> all right, thanks for that, barnabie phillips and talking of uk david cameron will be speaking at the u.n. in just over four hours from now and we will of course bring that live for you and in afghanistan heavy fighting in kunduz city and an early morning raid and eight police are said to have been killed and over 50 people wounded and we are joined live from the capitol kabul and have
6:10 am
things calmed down in kunduz at this point? >> well, as we have been talking to officials and residents, gunfire can be heard and reports telling us the taliban have taken control of building and local peace council office and currently clashes are ongoing near the city's only hospital and they are trying to prevent injured people from getting medical help. according to officials the road to the airport is also closed off and kunduz residents are hiding in their homes. the coordinated attack of the taliban was launched within the limits of the city, local time, at the same time taliban closed four entrances into the city effectively cutting all the routes into the city.
6:11 am
now officials say that reenforcement has been sent to the area along with air support, however, air strikes are not yet being carried out because of high number of civilians that live within the city, right now fighting is on going in the districts of the province and also there has been reports of fighting ongoing at the main entrance to the city. local residents told us that in one place taliban have raised their white flag and set some buildings on fire. >> if i could jump in here you mentioned raising the flags and this is not the first time they tried to take kunduz and why is kunduz important for the strategy for the north of afghanistan? >> well, kunduz was the center of fierce battle between the
6:12 am
afghan government and the taliban in april this year when the spring offensive began, now kunduz is a strategic province which links providence and reenforcement have to go through condoes province and it's located on the border with pazikstan and business route to central asia. >> thanks for that update there. still to come on the show pope francis concludes his historic visit to the u.s. addressing the issue of sex abuse in the church and the double dose of moon magic, star gazers across the world get a rare lunar treat and how the galaxy ended their time of drought coming up, next in sport. ♪

6:14 am
way for independence in 18 months time. >> translator: we have a lot of work to do and we are not going to relax, we have a democratic mandate and we know what that means, we know how we have won, we have won against the odds. >> reporter: there may yet be trouble ahead on the road to independence and the full way for the spanish constitutional court deployed by the government to block any move to independence and the fact this incredibly precarious coalition will have to stand together and govern. there is every possibility that in politics such an opportunity is isic arrangement will fracture and fall and battle lines will be drawn across the country just e merging from economic crisis that can afford to lose one of i its prosperous parts. >> it belongs to spain and i think there is no sense in

trying to separate it from spain. it would not bring anything good for us. >> it's in the interest of the politician. >> reporter: and successionist movements elsewhere will be watching closely. >> the flag and flag from nevada and whales, scotland, britain, abwe want catalonia to be free and it's up to the people to decide that but we think they at least have the right to do so and spain so far has only said no, no, no. >> reporter: what happens next may provoke a constitutional crisis not just in spain but possibly in places far beyond. jonah with al jazeera, barcelona. >> reporter: more from jonah who is outside the regional parliament in barcelona and jonah really important moment and not only in spanish but
6:16 am
european politics, a bunch of questions for you and a brief one does it look like they are going to be able to put together that majority in parliament? >> well, sammy the point is that the coalition grouping together for yes it's called did win the majority in this parliament to govern, they didn't win an absolute majority and are going to have to negotiate with the far left grouping that has 11 or 12 seats that will take them over the absolute majority mark and keen on independence on a much shorter timeline than the together for yes timeline and this is a group that is described as an anticapitol movement whose leaders have been calling for acts of civil disobedience of unjust laws of madrid and bringing this group into an already difficult position of the right and the left and hope to actually govern

in this enormous and prosperous and they will they come together on health and tax and that will be a big difficulty moving forward holding all of this together. >> a lot of focus on independence, have they explained what the next step also be on that road to independence? what happens next? >> well, they are going to try and put a very brave face on things here with a detailed program at least the main coalition does and they will win the next few days announce the start of that program to build a diplomatic service, to build a central bank, a treasury, the institutions of independence of this country over the next 18 months and to change the constitution to allow for a declaration of independence, that is the broad plan but i tell you what one thing really
6:18 am
matters in all of this and that is the question of legitimacy and hope they get the question of legitimacy by using it as a referendum and never allowed to hold a referendum and have not won 50% of the vote itself and have the seats but not the votes and cannot claim to have legitimacy in spain and can't claim to have legitimacy in the eyes of international institutions in europe and elsewhere who they very much will need as allies moving forward. >> you mentioned the international aspect and glad you did and this is a line that is talking, a spokesman calling on catalonia to honor treaties and stick to the spanish constitution and a lot of eyes watching this throughout europe and it's not just a spanish story is it? >> oh, yes, and a lot of countries will be very concerned
6:19 am

6:28 am
♪ welcome back, let's recap our headlines now, russian president vladimir putin is to meet u.s.
6:29 am
president barack obama at sidelines after the general assembly and crisis of syria is likely to dominate their discussion. the uk announced it is sending 370 troops to take part in peace keeping missions in somalia and south sudan with logical and engineering support and afghan police officers killed in fighting with taliban forces who raided the northern city, the city is reports to be in lock down after the early morning attacks from several different directions. and we have a former afghan member of parliament who represented kunduz province and a member of the right injustice political party and live from the afghan capitol kabul and looking at attacks and what was relatively peaceful north attacks have now increased, are you worried that authorities are losing control in places like
6:30 am
kunduz? >> well, you have heard from the news taliban attacked early this morning approximately 4:00 from four sides to the kunduz city. the area which is very norm under the control of taliban in the past is on scale one side from the district which is in the north of kabul. it is under the control of taliban, the city of kunduz is totally under the grove and the government is not in kunduz at this stage, he is in pakistan and the chief is also not in kunduz, only the chief of the police is there. as far as i received the resent news from kunduz, the talibans are trying to cut the road to
6:31 am
the airport of kunduz because the government should not support the police forces and army in kunduz and a war is going around the city, not south and the east of the city from both sides, the tall been -- taliban are there and afraid and inside the houses and nobody else in the streets or the city. taliban in the past hours attacked the house and university and entered the university and have entered to the pruvential. >> and you represented kunduz
6:32 am
province before and how much authority do they have in the capitol kunduz? >> which the district is under the control of taliban for the past four months. the local government of the streets are under the control of the taliban are there and have received the support from the north of kunduz and out of kunduz as in the part of pakistan and also in the district of archie and they are receiving support from the islamic movement of pakistan also but mainly most of the taliban in kunduz who have attacked mainly they are local people who are leaving and activist streak and charter of the streak which most of the area of charter was in the past
6:33 am
three months under the control. the main reason of controlling of taliban, the kunduz province because of that existence of that and responsible people who were in kunduz and fighting sometimes with each other and those who belong in the former majority and groups. most of the time they fight against each other. this was the most region which taliban attacked and the other reason is the corruption in the local government of kunduz which people of kunduz are not happy with the local government in various departments so they have supported local people and also taliban and that is the main reason also. >> we will leave it there for now and thanks for your thoughts. israeli security forces fired stun grenades at palestinian
6:34 am
workers at the compound that occupied east jerusalem and see -- sacred to jews and they can visit but cannot pray there and how calm is the situation now? >> well, sammy the situation is now relatively calm, that of course was a very different situation just a few hours ago when there were fairly bitter confrom takess between palestinian workers and israeli forces and we understand that stun grenades at one point were fired in the mosque itself and also understand at one point israeli security forces barricaded one large door it should be said to keep worshippers from coming out. as we have been saying a tense situation along the mosque
6:35 am
during this jewish holiday and the reason this is significant is far right jewish groups in fairly large numbers tried to access the mosque compound during a visiting period which is allowed about five days out of the week and when they come in these large numbers it makes things very tense and why we see the confrontations we have seen today. >> explain the confrontations and israeli security forces keep raiding the mosque compound. >> yes, it's no doubt a very complicated situation, the fact of the matter is year around people of denomination of christian or faith group are allowed to enter the mosque complex at a certain time of day, 7:30 local time and 11:30 local time but the difference
6:36 am
particularly during the jewish holidays are the right groups come in fairly large numbers but don't come alone and come with a fairly large security detail, security forces if you will. when that happens again it creates a very tense situation on the ground with palestinian worshippers and the reason they are so uncomfortable by the far right jewish groups that come in it's because it's clear and want to change something that is known as a status quote and an agreement reached between israel and jordan after israel occupied palestinian territories which means they are in control of muslim holy sites in occupied east jerusalem ensuring only muslims will be able to pray in the compound and the far right want to change it and it's
6:37 am
problematic for palestinian workers and why we see the confrontations that we do. >> this is a place that is holy and special to people of many faiths, there is a space for muslims to pray and a place where jews pray, the western wall, why is there argument and friction over jews praying inside the mosque compound? >> it's a very interesting question and if you ask me a few years ago this probably wouldn't be as big of an issue as it is now, for many decades it was only a small fridge within israeli society that wanted to go in the mosque compound and to create a space for jews to worship but that has changed in resent years and deeply politicized and prominent politicians entering the compound last year and at certain points this year and
6:38 am
it's inflammatory and shows a shift within israeli society that people are becoming more willing or at least are more interested in having a jewish president inside and as we have been saying that is certainly something that palestine is worried about and look at the city of hebron which effectively was carved in half and allowed to worship in part of what was their mosque and afraid the same thing will happen here and why we see the confrontations we do. >> thanks so much, six months in war and aiden is in ruins and try to have factions that helped it to capture it in july and further north the fighting rages on and we have more. >> reporter: the sea port city of aiden is under government control. entire areas were destroyed during months of fighting
6:39 am
between shia houthi rebels and government troops. security forces patrol neighborhoods, most of these fighters are members of the successionist movement, a group of armed southerners who want the south to break away from the north. >> translator: we are at the palace which the houthis kept taking over and thanks to coalition they are the ones that ousted the rebels from the palace and god willing security and stability will return to aiden. >> reporter: faces the delicate task of uniting factions but his authority has been weakened and he now depends on coalition troops to secure aiden and the south. hadi government have so far rejected calls for talks with rivals insisting the houthis must surrender.
6:40 am
>> they have to cooperate fully with the u.n. reservoirzation 2216 and to withdraw the violence and to recognize that there is no solution in yemen unless they turn back to where we started before the 21st of septemb september. >> reporter: another major battle front. these are government fighters trying to push the rebels out of districts that control, backed by elite army units loyal to former president saleh the houthis still hold ground. al jazeera. president of maldives escaped unhurt from an explosion on his boat and may have been a problem with the engine but it's too early to say, his wife and several others on board were
